Rice Shipped to Gulf Coast
Shopping for friendly black faces, Bush regime sends secretary of state down South
Condi Rice could have put her vacation to good use. But all those shoes she bought at Ferragamo during her vacation last week in Manhattan won't do her any good in the floodwaters of the Gulf Coast.
If she's really going to try to rescue George W. Bush from the swamp, as she started trying to do Sunday by going to a black church in Alabama, she's going to have to get herself some hip waders, like the ones I fitted her with above.
As to what she says about this crisis, who cares? When we shipped her to Africa earlier this summer, she ignored the crisis in Niger.
